Happy Anniversary to Me

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

Today is my 8th wedding anniversary. Yay!

I also went in to clean out my Spark People email and saw that I've been a member of this site for almost FIVE YEARS! What? I can't believe it. Obviously, I haven't been active that whole time or I'd be a much higher number.

I've tried many things over the last 5 years to lose weight. Nothing is really working. I saw that I've only lost 6 pounds in the last 5 years. That's not very good is it?

I have to find a doctor that will look into other causes besides my thyroid. The thyroid medication that I'm taking is clearly not working. Something else is at play here...I just need to figure out what it is.

For the past 10 days, I've been juicing. And, I have to say...I feel great. The weight loss has slowed, because we added one meal a day (mostly veg, still). But yesterday, I walked for 95 minutes! My only complaint is that fresh produce has overtaken my ENTIRE kitchen and fridge! LOL

I can't wait to go to my doctor in June and show her just what I've been eating and how I've been exercising...and then watch her try to tell me that I need to do more in order to lose weight. HA!

Anyway....I'm mostly writing this to check in for myself. A little road sign along the way to say Hey...I'm still here. I'm still trying. :o)

    Congratulations on your anniversary and your weight loss. Even a few pounds down is better than a few added, right? Hope the doctor can help. Hang in there, one healthy meal, one exercise, one positive day at a time and always believe in yourself you can do this, one pound at a time. emoticon -- Lou
